Pages of a U.S. Congressional committee report declassified Friday claim "September 11 hijackers were in contact with, and received support or assistance from, individuals who may be connected to the Saudi Government." In addition, the so-called "Missing 28 pages" on the Saudis and 9/11 suggest Saudi government officials in the United States at the time "may have other ties to al-Qa'ida and other terrorist groups." The pages were part of a broader 9/11 study by a joint Congressional committee, and the Saudis and the U.S. sought to keep some of the alleged connections under wraps in support of the two nations' longstanding allegiance. In addition to the controversy over the 28 missing pages, U.S. courts have helped to keep it festering by ruling alternatively for and against the unrelenting campaign of 9/11 families to allow these courts to hold the Saudi government and its charities responsible by lifting their sovereign immunity.
